Little Jenny, beautiful and fair,
Her large blue eyes, crystal and clear
Her smile enticing and true,
Her touch chases away every blue.

Little Jenny's mom and dad are kind,
Everyone in town praises them front and behind,
They give love to all the unloved,
They sing Hallelujah with all they have.

Little Jenny's tinkling laughter echoes everywhere,
At home she plays with her doll like nobody cares,
She sat in her room like a good girl does,
Her mom and dad bang dishes and curses like playing a tag.

Little Jenny stares with her blue eyes at the reds and blues,
Her smile like a ghost on her painted skin in all different hues,
She sings a nursery song above the bad melodies,
She dances with her doll away from her mama's heavy caresses.

Little Jenny cried and cried at the dead of the night,
She wishes the moon and the stars to bade her good night.
Little Jenny must show her best smile for morrow,
She must not give everyone a bad show.
